Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is currently gearing up to begin production at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. Even though the film seems to feature just about every character that has appeared in a Marvel Cinematic Universe film, the production is still in need of additional performers. Because of this, we might have gotten a few hints at some of the details of the film’s plot.
Backstage.com (via Uproxx) has posted several casting calls for the upcoming Avengers film. While a couple of the listings are pretty generic, like one for soldiers and there’s also one that sounds like a Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow body double for Scarlett Johannson, a few of the listings, however, may give away some of the locations that will appear in the film.
Here are the casting calls in question:
Warrior Woman (Background/Extra): Female, 20-39. Athletic build, 5’9”-5’11”, waist 26-28, hips 37-39. Looking for someone with a high top fade or willing to cut hair on just the sides and wear a wig. African-American.
Vikings (Background/Extra): Males & Females, 18-59. Especially looking for men with long hair & beards. Must be comfortable with fake blood and possibly special effects make-up. Caucasian.
Aliens (Background/Extra): Males & Females, 18-50. Tall, slender or athletic build. Must be comfortable being painted (including on your face & any exposed body parts). All ethnicities.
So a couple of things stand out here. First, there’s the listing for the Warrior Woman, which from the description sounds like it could hint at a scene taking place in Wakanda, which is known for its warrior women, the Dora Milaje. Then, there are the Vikings, which most likely is referring to the Asgardians, who sport a similar appearance, so we might be visiting Asgard in the film as well. Finally, there are the aliens, and this one could mean just about anything. Maybe the final battle takes place entirely in space, which would be a nice departure for an Avengers film. Or this film could go the route of the first Avengers and feature an alien invasion of Earth, though the repetition there makes it seem unlikely. Then again, this could just be a scene that introduces the Guardians of the Galaxy. For now, this is all just speculation, but we’ll know for sure when Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters May 4, 2018.
